Hi Doctorfab,

very nice setup. What do you use for the stacking movement?

regards

Thank you! For stacking i use the y axis of the Suruga Seiki stage, it's slow I know, but for now that's the only way I can move the subject. The camera shoots at 2 seconds intervals, with a 2 seconds shutter delay. Photoshop CS6 is taking care of the rest!

I'm intrigued on your lighting choice, and how you go about using it.

I recently purchased a Schott LCD 1500 fibre optic unit, rather than Flash or LED constant lighting rig.
But to be honest, I'll probably end up getting flash units as well, as I can use them in other applications.

Questions: Do you use both together?, if so why the need / want?
If using both, what factors in your choice of lighting balance, and how do you achieve it? [Meter the balance basically ]
